Why Follow Jesus? - 01/24/99
I. Introduction –
Why would Peter, Andrew, James, and John simply leave their work and family to follow Jesus? John’s gospel fills in the picture.
II. The witness of John the Baptist –
someone first told them about Jesus
III. They spent time investigating –
they went to see for themselves
IV. They were invited
V. Conclusion –
This is how people become disciples: when we point them to Jesus, help them to learn, then invite them to follow. First we must be disciples ourselves by learning and following.
